STYLE GURU STYLE: In With The New...And The Old

With fashion trends coming and going so often, it can be challenging to remain true to your style. At times, I find myself lost due to the overwhelming amount of options us Fashionistas/os are presented with. When introducing a trend to my wardrobe I make sure to trust my instinct to be authentic. I believe there is no right or wrong when it comes to your own sense of style.

I decided to put together an outfit that involves new and old trends but remains true to myself. No matter what your daily schedule looks like you can never go wrong with a sweater dress. You’re able to be comfortable and stylish all at the same time. For extra warmth, edge and a love for ’70s fashion, I added a suede jacket.

For shoes, I went with the very trendy over-the-knee boot. Over-the-knee boots can easily be dressed up or dressed down. With this outfit, I wanted to take a more casual approach to the dress and boots combination. Wearing a sweater dress with a higher neckline and sleeves allows this ensemble to become an everyday look. Putting on a suede moto jacket also took away from the boots by creating a consistency of texture. The boots, therefore, blended effortlessly with the look as a whole.

Lastly, I completed my outfit with a vintage Louis Vuitton crossbody. I still remember the day when my mother passed down this bag to me! This crossbody is timeless and pairs with most everything I own; making it my signature closet staple.

All in all, fashion is a way for us to express who we are as individuals. We can choose to be traditional with our style or step outside of our comfort zone. I highly encourage you to continue experimenting with fashion whether it’s different patterns, materials or accessories. Most importantly, always embrace who you are as a Fashionista/o because there is no one else like you!
